Effective Planning - National Planning Framework
As greater investment in infrastructure is essential in coming years an efficient planning system for major infrastructure projects is crucial to ensure that existing businesses can expand and grow within Ireland. All planning decisions should be informed by evidence-based and strategic planning policies and planning processes must be reformed to ensure that large scale infrastructure and housing developments can be processed as efficiently as possible.
National Planning Framework
Ireland needs a robust National Planning Framework to ensure that capital investment and infrastructure plans are implemented through best practice planning. A National Planning Framework must provide a strategic context for the development of regional economic and spatial strategies. To ensure its success, there must also be political commitment, nationally and locally to the full implementation of a National Planning Framework.
